, can that really be true. let's look at the facts and consider what's in front of us. the white house plan and the landscape they are facing. over the next ten years, the cost of medicare is going to gradually ramp up until it's about a trillion dollars a year. the white house and joe biden would like to introduce that by 10%, the orange section in here. that's the part they want to get rid of. now, their opponents say this part you're getting rid of, that's real care. you are hurting people by taking away benefits. no, it's not. these are reductions and fees, payments that we're making to hospitals and health care programs. in a word this is waste, we can and should get rid of it. but now let's look at the republican pan. the same landscape. same increase up to $1 trillion and would like to reduce it by 10%, but want to rely on private sector, not the government and to do that, they are going to use vouchers. they don't really like that word, but that's what it is in its essence. right now, if you are on medicare, what happens, the government pays medicare. medicare pays the hospital

, you make profits overseas, you don't have to pay u.s. taxes. of course, if you are a small business, mom and pop business, or a big business, you have to pay a reduced rate even that governor romney is talking about, and it's estimated that will create 800 million new jobs. problem is, they'll be in china, or india, or germany. that's not the way we'll create jobs here. the way we'll create jobs here, not just create our jobs, but double our exports. we are on pace to double our exports. creating tens of thousands of jobs across the country. that's why we kept on pushing trade deals, but trade deals that make sure american workers and american businesses are getting a good deal. governor romney talked about china. as i already indicated, in the private sector, governor romney invested in phi nears of outsourcing. not my phrase, what reporters call it. and as far as currency manipulation, the currency has actually gone up 11% since i've been president, because we have pushed them hard. put unprecedented trade pressure on china, and that will help create jobs here. >> mr. president, a
